October Glory

October has been such a beautiful month! Mostly great weather, and a wonderful time with my family visiting from Idaho. :-)

Our "October Glory Maple" in all it's splendor: More front porch decor. The "mums" are a late housewarming gift from our realtor friend. :-)

While my family was here, we went to a few houses in the local tour of homes. My sister and Nathanael posed for me in the girl's nursery in my favorite house of the tour. :-)

The leaves on our maple tree were so beautiful, but shortlived. They are already half dropped off now. :-(

At the American Girl Store in Overland Park, Kansas.

I still love these dolls. ;-) "Rebecca" is my new favorite.

We had a nice little tea party on the back deck, after which we played "Authors", which is my little sister's favorite game. It is quite fun when you are as fond of books as we are. :-)

It was a little sunny outside. Ha

Last pics before the visit ended yesterday:

My dad was here for a week of my family's visit, but I didn't get any good pictures of him. :-/I think he would rather I didn't publish the ones I did get. Haha

Have a wonderful last few days of this beautiful month!

Looks like you all had fun! :) Great pics. :) You will have to send me more of the houses you toured. :) That little nursery looks adorable. :) Glad you all had fun together and they could visit. :) Much nicer than having an ocean separating you i am sure. :)

Ha ha! I can't believe I didn't see these pictures until just now!! The post probably hit right when I was very short on internet time...
